I was supposed to go to Quilts UK in Malvern on the first day of the show. The weather was raining cats and dogs and I got a call from someone there saying it was packed even more than normal. I suspect that was because the weather meant no one was sitting outside as they normally do for a breather. So I put it off a day.
On the Friday we picked up my new little car and drove up there. I didn't want to arrive too early to avoid the crowds so we stopped for lunch in Upton upon Severn. I noticed this delightful Laundrette. I love how they did their retro windows.
This is how I love quilting by hand or machine, more is more. And it is no surprise to see she received three ribbons for this work.
I did buy some fabric..... shoot me. But who could resist this Dutch Heritage border print?
I spent Saturday in bed until mid afternoon recovering. I had company.
It is my birthday on Saturday, so I made a cake. It is a bit wonky but it smelt heavenly.
The smell was too much and instead of waiting, I was very naughty and cut it early.
